#Kits

In case you did not follow the GH/KT IC, here are the two kits that are up for sale:

Giveaway & Raffle

The original plan was to raffle the Alpha Keycaps Jedi Blink between GB participants, unfortunately this proves to be a bit tricky due to the personal data protection laws. So, here is what is going to happen:

  • Kono is going to organize a giveaway in which you can win 1 Core kit, 1 Extra Kit and 1 Jedi Blinker. If you want to learn more, head over to https://kono.store/pages/giveaways!! The Giveaway will be opened for 2 weeks!

  • We are holding a raffle (form will open in roughly 2 hours) for the monochrome Jedi Blinker. The form will stay open for 24h to give everyone the opportunity to join. Invoice will go out on as soon as possible, but I work full time so this might take up to 12h before the 10 invoices go out (all invoices will go out at once). After that, you will have 24h to pay. If there is a problem, please let me know as soon as possible. Should your invoice not be paid after those 24h, I will cancel it and the artisan will be reraffled. Head over to the Google form for a chance to win :slight_smile:

  • RAMA is offering is iconing X and O caps in two variants.

    • Plain Black ano: X | O
    • Laser etched: X | O

    Those RAMA keycaps can be bought by anyone, whether you take part in the keyset GB or not, and you can get as many as you want!

whats the MOQ on the compat kit? Trying to assess its likelihood of making it :slight_smile:


#3

MOQ is 150 BUT if we even get close, I know they will lower that MOQ for us. I’m still in talks with GMK to see what MOQ we have to reach :slight_smile: I’ll be getting it myself, so that’s at least 1 confirmed purchase haha


#4

If I decide to go for this, I’ll definitely be getting a compat kit as well.

The pricing on the Rama caps for EU is just sad :frowning:


#5

Totally with you on that one, unfortunately that is what taxes will do to a price :frowning:

What’s up everyone!

Here is a quick update on the Monochrome sale as of today:

  • Base Kit - 58/150

  • Extras Kit - 20/150 (I’m currently talking to GMK to see if we can lower the MOQ of this kit)

  • Rama - 55/50 (MOQ hit! this will be produced no matter what)

Could things have gone better? For sure, but they could have been far worse too! We are at a little over a third of the MOQ in a little over a third of the GB time :slight_smile: The Group buy is live until the end of September and I KNOW you want a monochrome set in your live :sunglasses:

Also, every GB participant gets one ticket for this gorgeous Jedi Blinker v1.2.
